Medals may not be the only indicator of success but the 26 medal haul that youngsters took away from Hertfordshire sure tells you something.

The youngsters all belong to Littleport Gymnastics Club and 18 of them travelled to Hitchin to compete in the floor and vault invitational event.

The gymnasts, whose ages ranged from 6-12yrs, performed exceptionally well against other clubs from around the eastern region.

Head coach Diana Strange had no doubt at all about their momentous achievement.

“We are so proud of what our young girls and boys have achieved,” she said.
